Correct Your Smile Imperfections

A veneer is a thin shell that covers the outer surface of a tooth. They’re typically fitted to multiple teeth at once in the “smile zone,” which are the teeth you see when you smile or speak with someone. If you’d like that Hollywood smile but aren’t there yet, you may not need anything more than veneers. Veneers might allow you to avoid options such as braces or Invisalign® while ensuring long-lasting results.

The Many Advantages
of Our Veneers

There are a few different materials available on the market today when it comes to veneers. We’ve chosen to work with ceramic and porcelain for good reason:

• They can last up to 10-15 years
• They are resistant to staining, fractures and chips
• They fit the underlying tooth snugly for a perfect look
• They are easy to maintain
• They look natural and beautiful

Two Appointments for Veneers

You’ll book in for two appointments right away to complete the process for your veneers. The first visit is to prepare your teeth for veneers. It can take 1-3 hours, depending on how many veneers you’re getting. About 2-3 weeks later, you’ll return after our laboratory has custom-fabricated your veneers. At that appointment, the veneers will be permanently attached to your teeth.

We’ll monitor the health of your veneers and the rest of your teeth at your regular checkups, which are carried out every six months.

Veneers FAQ’s

Is it painful to have veneers done?
Dental anaesthetics are used, which makes it comfortable for you. The first appointment takes somewhere from one to three hours, depending on how many veneers you’re getting. This preparation appointment just requires a good amount of sitting for you, but we’ll give you breaks when you need them. You’ll be able to have your choice of music playing to help the time pass by quickly.
Can teenagers have veneers?
Thanks to the rise of social media, many teenagers feel like they don’t have teeth that are as white as some of their peers or the people they follow on Instagram. It’s important to know, however, that the teeth are still growing up until the age of 20. After that point, you may be a candidate for veneers. You cannot get them if your teeth aren’t done growing.
Are there people who are not good candidates for veneers?
Some people don’t have strong enough tooth structure to hold veneers. Or if their jaw closes improperly, it may cause breakage of the veneers. The same result may come if you grind your teeth at night, so we don’t recommend veneers to anyone who has this problem.
How should I care for my veneers?
You should treat your veneers just like they’re natural teeth. Though they can’t become decayed like a normal tooth can, the gum around it is still susceptible to gum disease. Brush and floss around your veneers. We’ll check them at your regular cleaning and examination appointments to make sure they remain healthy.
How will my veneers look?
You will be involved in the process of designing your veneers. The shape and colour of each can be made to exact specifications, ensuring that you are thrilled with the results you get.
Are there alternatives to veneers?
Yes, there may be alternatives to getting veneers depending on what you would like to achieve. For example, if you have chipped or damaged teeth, getting a dental crown or several dental crowns placed on the affected teeth may achieve the same outcomes. We will discuss all possible treatment options with you so that you can decide how you would like to proceed.
Will you be able to tell my veneers from my other teeth?
No. Your veneers will blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile. If you’d like, you can embark on a teeth whitening procedure before getting your veneers. Then, your veneers can be designed to match the new, brighter shade of your whitened teeth, giving you the look of a smile makeover.
